Sarah and Shaun | Boston | New England Aquarium Wedding

After their engagement shoot I just couldn't wait for this wedding! I knew it was going to be so much fun and so beautiful.

When Sarah and Shaun asked me to photograph their wedding over a year ago, I was really flattered. They had enough confidence in my work to choose me even though I had not even done a wedding yet. That means so much to me! Luckily for them I did three weddings before their September 18th date rolled around so I ended up with at least a little experience before then.

It was an overcast afternoon in Boston at the Aquarium with a little chill in the air but not too bad.

I randomly ran into the boys in the hotel bar before the ceremony having a drink and checking in on the ladies who were running late!

On the way out of the hotel there was a little run in with a drunk bum sort of guy who didn't want to leave Sarah alone. He stuck right with her and was chewing her ear off. She handled it awesomely but hotel security had to step in.

We spent some time before the ceremony taking group pictures. Everyone was very cooperative and I was appreciative for that!

Oh, and the colors Sarah chose were outstanding! I was loving how they were so bold and blended together perfectly.

On the way to the Aquarium for the ceremony we ran into a dog being walked. Sarah wanted her picture with him. Anyone who loves animals that much is OK in my book.

Right before the ceremony we took some more group shots with their families. Not a bad location, eh?

Then it was finally time for them to get married! The ceremony was on the same dock next to where the pictures above were taken. Such a beautiful location!

Shaun's best man and brother Tim is a total comedian. I was shocked that he hadn't pulled anything up until that point but he was just waiting until he had a full audience to perform. When he was asked for the rings he patted his jacket, checked his pockets with a worried look then turned to the next groomsman and said "Oh, I gave them to you to hold". They ended up repeating that all the way down the line. I actually forget who ended up having the rings but it was so funny.

After the ceremony this beautiful set up was waiting in a huge tent for all of the guests.

Not a bad view.

One of my favorite things to photograph at a wedding are the speeches. The natural expressions and reactions you get to capture are priceless. Here is Tim being funny again.

Love this one!

I had such a great time at this wedding and am so thankful that they gave me the opportunity to be their photographer.
